our process

Great branding starts with a great story

1.

First we listen

Every business is different, with its own unique objectives, challenges and circumstances that we never assume to know. So, we listen... and we get out the whiteboard markers... and we get on the same page fast. We can facilitate workshops to align key stakeholders, involve your team in the process, or simply to extract the information we need to get started.

2.

Then we explore

Making you stand out from the crowd means we need to understand the crowd. Our research helps us to identify opportunities, and form a vision before setting about making it real. Design is an iterative process, but experience allows us to cut to the chase and move on if an idea has no legs.

3.

Pressure test

Many agencies will pump out a bunch of random ideas that could work but often don't. Being design lead, we seek solutions to problems (not ideas that might win an award). We bring level-headed objectivity to the room in order to cut through the 'blah blah blah' and get to the point.

4.

Divide and conquer

We're not precious. Working with you, your team, and trusted collaborators, we leave our egos at the door and roll up our sleeves. We like being treated as an extension of your team because we can get on with things without a fuss. This enables us to push each and every project live as efficiently and cost effectively as the last.

Digital design is like painting except the paint never dries.

5.

Optimise!

As the great Neville Brody once pointed out, the digital era gives businesses the opportunity to evolve to suit the market circumstances. Back when we were designing brochures and pressing 'print' you could be forgiven for dwelling long and hard on the precise wording that might make the sale. These days we encourage you to go live sooner, then track your users and see what actually works.

Great work begins with great coffee (and a quick chat)
